Magellanic penguin nest building, Sea Lion Island, The Falkland Islands.

Taken by David Potter

I was spending some time photographing Magellanic penguins in the Falkland Islands during the early evening. It was cloudy and the light was just starting to gradually fade so I had increased the ISO settings. I was starting to think about going back to the lodge when this one suddenly appeared struggling to carry this nest material.

Early morning spots in Namibia

Taken by Roger Clark

We set off at sunrise, the perfect time for a game drive with the increasing light and animal sounds. We travelled along many tracks with no luck but after an hour or so, the driver had to do an emergency stop. Then we watched as a cheetah appeared in the road, followed by two young cheetahs emerging from the grass.

Early morning winter sun over Slieve Bearnagh, Northern Ireland

Taken by Brian McCready

I walked for nearly two hours in the dark to the summit of Slieve Bearnagh, with just a head torch to light the route. Once there, I remained on the summit for a couple of hours, taking a series of images as the sun rose behind the rocky tor. The atmospheric clouds continuously passing overhead were a bonus as they added to the drama of the scene.

Four on a bike, night market, Kolkata, India

Taken by George Turnbull

My wife and I were staying in Kolkata in India and one evening I was out looking for street scenes to photograph, when I happened to come across this family on a motorbike. There was little time to take the picture, it wasn’t posed, and the smile on the older lady’s face is what makes it special.

Light beams in a Marrakesh market, Morocco

Taken by Dominic Burdon

I took this picture at a market in Marrakesh on a long honeymoon this summer. I noticed a series of light beams breaking through the smoke while out exploring the numerous back alleys, so I hunted around for the best angle to capture the scene. The moment seemed perfect as this man gave me a big smile and rode on past me.

This week's winner, taken by Jo Kearney

Nomads, Kyrgyzstan

Taken by Jo Kearney

I spent a few days photographing the nomads around the Song Kul Lake in Kyrgyzstan earlier this year with my Nikon D800. While I was taking photographs, this family kindly invited me for tea in their yurt. They were more than happy to be photographed and their daughter even changed into a party dress.

This week's winner, taken by Steve Bradshaw

Mountain gorilla

Taken by Steve Bradshaw

Following our machete wielding guides, we found our group of eastern mountain gorillas after a couple of hours of tough climbing. We were rewarded with the privilege of seeing a family of gorillas, including twin babies, an experience that I found very emotional. I took the shot with an EOS 500D and 70-300 zoom set at full 300mm.

James Field-Mitchell attempting a difficult route at White Falls, Mount Ruapehu, New Zealand

Taken by Joshua Windsor

This photo was taken at White Falls, a newly developed climbing spot on the slopes of Mount Ruapehu on the North Island of New Zealand. To get an interesting vantage point above the climber, I had to set up an abseil from the top of the cliff. I'm a lot closer to the climber than it appears thanks to the optical effects of a wide-angle lens.

This week's winner, taken by Chris Mole

Driftwood, Ffryes Beach, Antigua

Taken by Chris Mole

Due to the slope of the beach it’s really difficult to get a decent photo of the waves breaking over the driftwood. You have to get very close and trust in your ability to pull the camera away from the waves just in time. This photo was taken from a couple of feet away, with a Canon 7D with a 13mm wide angle lens setting at 1/6400 sec shutterspeed.

This week's winner, taken by Alison Morris

Pushkar Camel Fair, Rajasthan

Taken by Alison Morris

I took the photo on the outskirts of Pushkar in Rajasthan, at the annual Pushkar Camel Fair. The camels are herded in each day from the local villages and I had to be on site early in the morning through to dusk to capture the image. It was taken with a Canon 5D Mk ii and a 70-300 mm lens at 140 mm. I used 400 ISO at f8.0 with a fairly fast shutter speed of 1/320ths of a second.

This week's winner, taken by Lynette Clarke

Yacare caiman, Pantanal, Brazil

Taken by Lynette Clarke

My photograph was taken with a Canon EOS 70D and a 70-200 Canon lens. ISO was 500 and f 5.6 which gave me 1/800. We were going up a small creek when this magnificent creature was on the bank, we watched as he gently moved the fish into his mouth. I took a couple of shots with his eyes shut and then he opened them and just looked straight at me.
